Introducing a new Milo with 30% less added sugar, Nestle are hoping the updated version will suit parents looking to cut sugar from their kids’ diets.
The company will still sell regular Milo as well - with the new reduced-sugar variety joining it on supermarket shelves in May.
But the big question is, does it taste the same?
While many will welcome the idea of a healthier way to drink your favourite choc malt drink, we all want to know one thing — does it taste the same?’
“It tastes exactly the same, so much so, most people don’t even notice the difference,” Nestlé’s spokeswoman Margaret Stuart told news.com.au.
“When we were working on developing Milo 30% less added sugar, our focus was on creating a product that looks like original Milo, tastes like original Milo, and behaves like original Milo — crunchy bits and all.
“We found in testing that people really loved the concept, but they liked it even more when they tasted it. It really exceeded their expectations. It tastes great.”
Guess the jury’s out until the people do their own taste test when it’s available in May. But the reception on social media so far has been mixed.
Said one: ‘I can’t believe it. Is nothing sacred? Leave Milo alone!’ But another said: ‘If it’s better for my kids, I’ll buy it. I think this is a good thing.’
